Tucked inside a vintage Creole house in downtown Gustavia, this très elegant, dimly lit spot is a celebratory place to be, as much for the romantic ambience as for consistently excellent food, fresh local takes on the cuisine of the Amalfi Coast. A recent menu featured cioppino, wild-boar risotto, and fettuccine with a beautiful braised short-rib Bolognese sauce. Many say this is the best food on island, but bring along your trust fund. You'll need it.
